Steakhouse
Bienvenue. Les Bubbles is a Parisian steakhouse on the corner of Wickham and Little Street in Fortitude Valley, forged in the very same building that housed the notorious illegal casino, bath-house and brothel at the centre of the Fitzgerald Inquiry. While the card decks and kerb servers are all but gone, the building’s colourful history remains pinned to every wall. Steak frites – known by many as the national dish of France – is the centrepiece of our menu. We sear the steak to your liking, before serving it with bread, salad, plenty of sauce and bottomless frites. Les Bubbles welcomes all, and as such, both vegetarian and pescatarian eaters will feel right at home. For any curious individuals, a change of scenery is available by wandering down a single flight of stairs. It’s there that you will find the Bath-House, featuring a full bar, banquet seating and a open-aired deck to enjoy a pre or post dinner cocktail!

despite a reservation we waited 10 minutes to be seated. water was taken away from the table (the sparkling stayed) my partners glass was empty for a very long time. the entrée (baked camembert) was more like glue than melted cheese. (tasted fine just was not a liquid as suggested) one of our drinks was incorrect (that was fixed up) and the wiskey sour was far too sweet. the salad was very oily and bland. The steaks were chewy and were not cooked they way we had asked. (asked for medium rare and were presented with rare steaks) the sauces provided with the steaks were all cold. did not stay for dessert disappointment had set in and I am sure there would have been a problem with it. we did not buy wine but the mark up was ludacris. overall a very average dining experience. there is only one main I expected it to be much better that a 15 dollar lunch rump at a pub. unfortunately that was where i believe this place belongs.

The steak frites - the only main dish @Les Bubbles - was underwhelming, overpriced and chewy (didn't feel like a premium steak cut). Our steaks were small and thin (150gm max), and worst: overcooked. I wanted my steak medium but it came out medium well done; my husband wanted his medium raw, his turned out medium well done. My husband compared his to an RSL quality steak.

We have been to Les Bubbles a few times before and were surprised at how mediocre the food is now. Will not be going back.

Good value. Great Creme Brulet. Awesome sauces. Bottomless chips and salad - bread. You never leave hungry. The steaks are not always perfect, but the sauces always make up for it. Occasionally front desk can be a bit weird, but the service is generally fine.

There was nothing on the menu and it was extremely expensive for no choice. Not all of our 8 people eat steak. Yes there was a vego option and fish but nothing else. Would of liked a pasta option. I also brought my baby and the only kids option was a kids steak. She is 16 months old. Also the cocktails where extreamly expensive for really only 20 versions of martinis. Would of liked a milky option. Also, the seating was for 1.5 hrs only....... would of liked the staff to offer to get us a coffee at the end of the meal or ask if we would of like desert.

A lovely experience. Great atmosphere, warm friendly, attentive and very proficient staff who know the product and make you feel welcome. Deliberately limited menu of outstanding quality food served in very generous quantity. Steak was perfect, high quality melt in mouth. Decent wine list and great cocktails! Will definitely be back. Great for a casual dinner but very appropriate for a special occasion too. Easy walk from train station and many cabs/Uber at the location. A gem! Go there.

I originally googled "best steak in Brisbane" and Les Bubbles popped up. The fact that they specialise in one dish is testament to how very good that one dish is. I am going to dream about this place until our next visit. Amazing!

Could not fault the food or service, the restaurant has a great look and feel and is filled with photos showcasing it's history but it's the food you'll return for. If you love steak frites with amazing sauces this is the place, one meal done exceptionally well was the promise and they didn't disappoint . The entree of bone marrow was exceptional paired with their amazing sourdough and don't get me started on the desserts, we had the brownies and creme brulee, both generous and delectable servings. Don't be put off by the 'one main' I personally would take the steak option again and again but one of our group had the vegetarian option which was equally good. I loved this restaurant and would happily revisit.

Took my two teenage daughters there and we loved the atmosphere. They loved the salad and sourdough bread. Both said they were the best chips they’d ever had and our steaks were cooked to perfection. Will definitely be going back.

Gave us a plate of lettuce, not really sure why. It was just lettuce and two bits of bread.
Meal came out in a reasonable amount of time but it was very grisly- and the only sides were French fries. Get more at the pub down the road for the same price. Pretty underwhelming
